Drag out those racquets!
« on: June 11, 2004, 07:16:36 PM »
First of all, can we have three cheers for Neil for creating this lovely court, laid with only the finest blue turf!  Yay, etc.

As part of the run-up to Wimblemong 2004, ccab and I have been indulging in a little mutual rasterbation.  The result is an exhibition match, to give any Photoshop Tennis virgins an idea of how it works.  And believe me, my friends - it is possible to get Photoshop Tennis elbow.  Oh, yes.

Limber up yer racquets, people - let's get going!

Edit - my webspace is due to be down from 0700 to 1300 on Sunday 13th - if you can't see these pictures at that time, don't blame me.

Edit 2.0 - And now it's down again!  I weep.

Edit 3.0 - Sorted.

I'd love to play, but I fear:

a) It'll clash with Glastonbury or othersuch summerinesses;

b) I'll be shit at it. (particularly given the intimidatingly high standard shown in the above warm-up, erm, "heat")

I think with the draw being made and the contestants actually playing the games, that would be no.

You could however get some mates together and play your own version of Photoshop Tennis in the garden after watching the games. You could pretend to be the stars of Photoshop.......bagseye I'm Almost Yearly.

It's always about this time of year I always think "ooh, I should get photoshop, it's great innit?" and then do nothing about it & forget again until next year.  I don't know why.
